MSc Sex, Gender, & Violence

The MSc in Sex, Gender, Violence at University of Aberdeen is a postgraduate programme located in the Department of Sociology in the School of Social Science. Through the course, we provide a critical and interdisciplinary approach to the study of sex, gender, and violence in today’s society.

The course runs in the second semester of the academic year, from early January through to March, with the option to study full (12 months) or part-time (24 months). Accompanying the course is the Dissertation in Sex, Gender, and Violence, which runs from April to August, for which you will write a 12,000 word thesis under the supervision of staff in the Department of Sociology.

During the course, you will engage with the theoretical works that frame the discourse on sex, gender, and violence, before learning about the ways that violence manifests in research methods, culture (including photography, film, and music), and conflict and peace-building in post-war and post-disaster communities.
